If you aren’t familiar with Kiva.org, you will be in just a few minutes. Kiva is a “non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty.” Kiva allows individuals to lend money to people (who work with Field Partners, who administer the loans for Kiva) without access to traditional banking systems.
It’s pretty cool. You lend money to someone who uses it to buy supplies or use it for their small business, and they pay back the loan once it pays for itself. An example is someone who needs to buy pasta, rice, and vegetables to sell to at their business.
The best part is that right now, using the link below, they’re giving $25 for you to make a loan for free! Trust me, it feels really good. So you just sign up, and you get to loan $25 to people to help them become self-sufficient
Here’s how it works:
1. Go to Kiva.org
2. Search through the hundreds of loans until you find one that speaks to you. You can filter by country, gender, sector, or attribute.
4. Get repaid and find a new loan to fund!
Through Kiva, I’ve made $150 worth of loans, all for free. And all loans have been paid back on time.
Most free money offer have a catch. But this is truly $25 that you can lend for free, and better yet, you feel good while using it. There are plenty of reasons to give money to charity, and this is a free way to truly make an impact on others!
What are you waiting for? Start lending with Kiva!
